Nick Williams, PhD

Associate Dean for Graduate Programs
Professional Summary
Professor Williams has been at the University of Cincinnati since 1990, interspersed with leaves at the University of Leicester and Yale University. His research focusing on empirically investigating the determinants of wage growth has been published in outlets such as the Review of Economics and Statistics, Industrial and Labor Relations Review, and Labour Economics. He also has an assortment of research that has been more policy oriented, including investigating the employment effects of the minimum wage, seeking to explain the growth of the temporary help supply industry, and investigating the effects of simultaneous learning and earning. Teaching has also been a very important part of Professor Williams' career and he has taught classes ranging from Principles of Economics to MBA Managerial Economics to Advanced Econometrics. Most recently he has focused on helping undergraduates appreciate and apply microeconomic theory and masters students in their journey toward their mastery of applied econometrics.
